    Here's our final 2020 C8.












    The first 2021 orders went in this week. One of them is the new Silver Flare Metallic color, which I think looks great.

    Agreed. It looks like it's for the guy that wanted a Ferrari, but couldn't afford one.

    Remove stripes and add limo tint would make it 100% better.

    Agreed. I do think this is the worst interior possible on a C8 but I can see why some folks really like it. It's just too much damn tan for me. I'd take the Morello Red interior over this one.

    I figured it was a clearance issue of some sort, or maybe it would rip off the mirrors or something.

    The interior has some interesting colors... black, red, tan, and silver. I mean, who wouldn't expect those to look fannntastic together.

    Whoever ordered that red on tan atrocity should have their ordering privileges revoked

    Yeah, the dipped interiors are color overload. There's this and the Morello Red that I posted on the first page.

    You can get a couple of other combinations of Natural that break it up. I'm like you though, I don't like tan interiors.

    Let me rephrase that, I did order the car but it was a sold order. The customer spec'd the car this way.

    You will never see me order one like that for stock and I damn sure wouldn't buy it for myself. My wife and I are going to order one once the hype dies down and I can get it for employee price. She wants one similar to nbmplano's dad's order. Silver Flare with black interior.

    I like the c8 but check this one out, I'd take this over a c8 any day. This the the pinnacle of "modern" corvettes for me.

    I’d rather have one that was all stock on the outside.

    Also, even if you don’t like the C8, you’d be crazy not to take a C6 or C7 ZR1 over that car. A C7 ZO6 would also be an easy choice.

    I'd rather have a C7 ZR1. To me that is the ultimate Vette up until now.

    Ahhh now it makes sense.

    I like red on black, white on black

    I may buy one when I can get employee pricing too. My new Tahoe @ employee pricing was a helluva deal considering they just hit the ground

    I agree, but it would hard to turn down a C6 ZR1

    It's really good on C8s. $75k msrp, employee price is $67k. Too bad no one can take advantage of that yet.

    Not sure which vette is my favorite. I really like a C5Z, a C6Z, and a C7Z. Not big on the ZR1 versions. The super charger is cool, but I'm not a big fan of the ZR1 looks on either the C6 or C7.

    I really like the C8 front and mostly the rear, but the side scoop back just kills it for me for some reason. Not sure if it's the shape, the size, the proportions...

    However, I do think color, stance, and wheels make a huge difference. Like the silver/blue one Gearhead posted in the other thread that was lowered on the concave wheels... that thing was fine as hell. As are some of the others.

    Have they recovered from that last shutdown?
